Qualifying for BADCAT

Why are there qualifiers?

Every entry will be reviewed prior to acceptance to the race. 


This is a very long, very difficult undertaking.  If you're going to be out there it's important you understand what you're getting yourself into.  Therefore we've established the following qualifiers to make sure you know what you're doing:
